How can you tell if an online job opportunity is legitimate?

Last Updated on

Do a background check on the company or potential client. Check its website and social media accounts. Look for online reviews, too.

If you found the job via Upwork, check the feedback left by freelancers the client has worked with.

Know the warning signs of a scam. Aside from fake jobs, avoid those involving anything illegal and unethical.

Here are several red flags to watch out for:

  • Asking you to open a bank account, receive funds from overseas, and send them to someone else
  • Requiring payment for membership or registration
  • Asking to send over sexy photos or do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable
  • Paying a lot of money for little work
